This kennel has 11 plastic bolt holes- This is the only requirement that this kennel does not follow. It came with plastic nuts. Metal nuts and bolts are required now for every flight. This carrier has 11 bolt holes plus an additional 4 tie down holes. My airline specifically said that every hole must have a bolt. So we needed 15 metal nuts and screws for the carrier. Some airlines let you leave the 4 tie down holes empty but check to be sure and order the bolts ahead of time to get the right amount. We dind't do this and had to buy 3 kits because of shipping time limits. Metal bolts on amazon did not have prime option. But these are what you need Pet Carrier Metal Fasteners Nuts Bolts (1-1/4" Medium Bolts, 16 Pack) 16 pack will ensure a better safe than sorry amount.
Has Pre drilled zip tie holes- Hard to find kennels with this already done. It is a requirement to zip tie the kennel doors shut. Quick release are best. Helping Hand Assorted Quick Release Nylon Cable Ties, 8-inch Make sure you insist on zip tying your dogs yourself! I watched the security guy do it wrong and had to redo do it myself. So glad I got the quick release. Same thing happened to a friend only they didn't catch that the attendant only thread it though the hole and not the door. Their dog got loose in the belly of the plane after ripping off the door. This brings me to the next feature.
Has single piece metal door- Be sure to follow this guideline, a metal single piece door. No plastic allowed! Some larger kennel doors have a fold in the middle of the door to make packing easier. Some airlines don't specify the type of door needed and some forbid the fold. It gives the dog the ability to pull the door in which will then collapse and allows for escape. This kennel door is a solid one piece.
Has protruding bar/side handles- This follows the requirement of "a spacer rim protruding at least 3/4 on all sides with ventilation openings"This is so the airline can carry and move the kennel without using the handle (known to fail on some kennels) and prevent a dog from being able to bite or contact movers hands. This kennel states that the rim is designed to work as side handles.
Has 4 sides of air holes- Requirement is air holes must be "on all four sides at least halfway on each side". This kennel has it and even better metal grates! I had a friend whose dog chewed the space between the plastic holes during flight. Some kennels show in the picture that they have air holes in the back but come to find after ordering they didn't have the air holes on the backside in the smaller sizes. Especially for cat carriers. Note- Domestic flights only requires 2 vent sides but they stack and pack kennels like baggage and airflow will be restricted. Go with ventilation on all sides.
Food Dishes- These were actually deep enough to be functional. Kennels with dishes attached inside on the walls are not allowed. Airlines must be able to "access dishes attached to door without opening the kennel door" they do this through funnels. On my main international flight with 2 layovers and a total of 20 hours travel they did not feed or water my dogs once. Even though it's the law. My advice freeze water ahead of flight so it doesn't make a mess or even better get a lixit water bottle to ensure your dogs don't dehydrate. We got Lixit Small Dog Water Bottle 16-Ounce
Stickers- This kennel came with stickers and that is a requirement but airlines have them and will use their own as well. The stickers included are crap and leave an awful residue. The airlines put the sticker packet of paper work over the " "Live Animal" in 1-inch letters on the crate's top" required sticker. Upon removal of that it lifted the sticker below mucking up the brand new kennels. My advice, bring the stickers and apply at check in where they are needed once the paperwork covers the entire top of kennel and use airline stickers if possible.
Note for size- The length requirement for international travel is [their length + half their leg] so there must be ample room in front and back. This made us need the larger kennel which is much larger than our previous kennel. Some will say that the rule of thumb is as long as they can turn around it's okay. But that is the length rule for IATA. Height for IATA includes ears and ears cannot touch top of kennel while standing. Again, why we had to go up a size (dang chihuahuas). After traveling with my pets on over 6 different flights I can say that most airline attendants are clueless about the pet requirements needed. I had one tell me they don't even receive training on the requirements and offered to let both dogs go into one kennel (a international no no). But I did have had one who knew their stuff and used a tape measure. So better safe than sorry!
Traveling with your pet no matter how far is stress full. With international flights being long dogs get anxious and try to escape, sometimes successfully in cheep kennels. So get this one! Airlines have different requirements and regulations. It's better to buy new then to try to modify existing kennels. Save yourself the time! Get this kennel and you only need to purchase zip ties (hand release are best), metal bolts, and some puppy pads. I realize this is much more info than necessary for a review but I know how hard it was getting this information. Please check this as helpful so that it may help others in the complicated kennel requirement process. Safe Travels!
Pet was refused to board and we missed flight due to shortcomings in Petmate's kennel. Requesting a full refund and free replacement for the next larger size kennel ASAP.
(Also, as numerous others have already noted, Petmate's claim that "Sky Kennel is considered the Gold standard for pet travel" is highly suspect considering they do not provide required hardware for airline travel (comes with plastic bolts provided instead of metal). I had already remedied this shortcoming in my preparation to travel but it still may come as a surprise to the consumer who blindly trusts Petmate's advertising.)
The kennel itself appears well made and arrived in perfect condition. Attaching the top to the bottom only took a couple minutes. The kennel comes with two "Live Animal" stickers already on it and an additional three stickers for you to add if needed.
I won't be traveling for several months, so I haven't attached the door to my crate yet. I put some blankets inside with the hope that my cat will enjoy hanging out in her new "cat fort" and thus be slightly less traumatized when she has to stay locked in it for hours during the flight. So far so good! I'll update this review after using it for travel.
Update: This kennel was great for my cat's flight overseas. She had to be shipped in pet cargo from the USA to London Heathrow, with a layover and a long wait in customs. The kennel itself was up to standard for international pet transport once I replaced the plastic nuts and bolts with metal nuts and bolts. Prior to her journey she had to ride in the car for several hours, and she HATES the car. Usually she yowls and throws up and is absolutely miserable. In this kennel, she was silent for the entire 4 hour trip! She was napping and would wake up periodically if we drove over a bump or something, but seemed very at ease the entire time. I think that this kennel really made her feel more secure than previous carriers.
The true testament to this carrier, though, is the fact that even after her undoubtedly traumatic experience flying overseas she still loves hanging out in it.
My final recommendations would be to definitely consider this kennel if you're shipping your cat anywhere, don't forget to replace the hardware, and don't underestimate the benefit of letting your cat acclimate to the carrier prior to traveling.

While this product claims to be IATA approved, it is not, as the door does not have a mechanism to secure it closed when the pet is travelling in Cargo. This is required by the IATA for airline approval, meaning that no airliner can legally onboard your animal with this kennel, despite Petmate claiming this kennel is suitable according to the IATA. Given the IATA requirements for kennel's are so strict, the lack of ability to lock the door closed meant that I had to buy new, compliant Kennels at the last minute after being told by my airliner that these kennels are not IATA approved. For anyone who has gone through the process of transporting animals overseas, you know that these details details are essential to your pet actually embarking their journey.
The previous reviews appear positive as the kennels are useful for non-air travel purposes, but I find it really misleading that Petmate advertise this as a 'Sky Kennel' when no Airliner would ever accept animals in this kennel, and it fails to meet IATA requirements to lock shut. I have received a refund for Amazon and have explained this to Amazon. This is not just a minor detail, as pets can obviously be harmed in Airplane Cargo should the crate open during the flight, which is completely foreseeable with this design.
Basically, if you actually want to use this as a 'Sky Kennel' it is useless and non-compliant with IATA. I also bought the 00200 for use on my dog and it had the same problem, so was not IATA approved.
At least £7 cheaper than I could find anywhere else.
El precio es muy bueno comparado con el mercado (veterinarias, tiendas de mascotas, tiendas de autoservicio, etc), te ahorras una buena diferencia.
El material de la transportadora es muy resistente y de buena calidad, es fácil de armar-desarmar en muy poco tiempo.
Contiene tornillos y mariposas adicionales de repuesto, sin embargo, no recibí los platitos que se muestran en la fotografía (no importante para mí).
La rejita y los seguros para bloquearla son muy buenos, muy dificíl que tu mascota pueda forzarlos para salir.
Adicionalmente contiene dos calcomanías de "live animals" por separado para poder pegarlas cuando sea necesario - la transportadora ya tiene un par de ellas adheridas.
The initial crate I used had been fine for 3 previous puppies. However my 4th one continuously butted her face against the door of the crate and had cuts from a sharp metal piece. The next crate I tried was rust-free and smooth but she could escape easily.
Finally with the SkyKennel I have a secure, 2-step door and she cannot hurt herself.
Husky macho de 35 kgs entró perfecto.
Par contre, à transporter c'est galère, pas de vraies poignées ni de roulettes.
On peut accrocher des sangles, finalement c'est sans doute mieux au vu du volume et du poids.
